I Don't Understand You

I never wanted to be a sensation
I just wanted to be myself
Slowly drowning in the wake of this nation
Excuse me mister while I dry my eyes
Picture Perfect, like the face of an angel
Heaven's garden when I feel the touch
Red river flows into the ocean of madness
The castle crumbles if it bleeds too much
Is it all what it seems to be, this life?
I lost my shadow in the setting sun
I'm just a poet on the run
I don't understand you
I built my world around you
I could never ever find you
I don't understand you
I walked the highway of the three number sixes
I felt the power when I looked in your eyes
Now burn my soul, bury my face in the ashes
Ain't going to Hollywood to live your white lie
The living dead, they dance alone in the spotlight
They feed their children empty kisses good-bye
Another knife upon the throat of the conscience
Another monumental sign of the times
It ain't all what it seems to be, this life
Cast my shadow to the setting sun
Just let me know what I've done
I don't understand you
I built my world around you
I could never ever find you
I don't understand you
I close my door and I hide my eyes
And maybe fate will find a way
I don't understand you
I built my world around you
I could never ever find you
I don't understand you
I've been to the left, I've been to the right
I'm losing my soul, better hold on tight
I've been to the edge, burned in the fire
I've seen the disease and I'm walking the wire
I don't understand you
